Lunch Time

The hunger pierced my stomach with a vengeance.
“I must push on,” I thought, “I must not stop.”
The sea of the hungry seemed to congeal around me and I was trapped temporarily before I finally broke free with a cry of victory.  With determination, I used my elbows like swords and cut my way through the passive waiters, subtly waving around those who had the same idea as me.  Finally, I reached the shore, the land of milk and honey.  With my arms limp and swaying beside me, I marched towards the smell that greeted me.  I reached in my pocket and squeezed my ticket to sustenance.  As I began to pull out my hard earned cash, I heard the ring of the bell.  My stomach dropped and I cursed my slow procession through the hungry storm.  The clouds of chaos subsided as everyone left the thundering room.  I was too late, lunch was over.

Maybe Later

I've decided that I really need to write on my blog more, starting right now!

...Maybe Later


Every once in a while you just need to do something different, out of the ordinary, and scary.  Everyone has courage, but not everyone chooses to use it.  I don't care if I don't live up to my full potential, or if I don't get a wonderful job and live in the lap of luxury with an amazing husband and kids who love me.  I could care less if I don't end up having a house at the beach that I visit every week and beautiful clothes and expensive jewelry.  I will be content as long as I can look back and honestly believe that I used up every ounce of courage available to me at that time.  As long I live my life with confidence, I won't have any regrets.  Every once in a while you just need to take a leap of faith and whisper to yourself "just do it." because it's not always better to be safe than sorry.
